Hong Kong’s Iconic Jumbo Floating Restaurant Capsizes

Hong Kong’s famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant capsized in the South China Sea after encountering “adverse conditions,” less than a week after it was towed away from the city, its parent company announced on 20JUN. On 18JUN, the ship was passing through the Xisha Islands when water entered the vessel and it began to tip, reports NBC News. According to the parent company, no one was injured, but efforts to save the ship failed. The Jumbo Floating Restaurant had been a landmark in Hong Kong for over 40 years, serving Cantonese cuisine to over 3 million guests, including Queen Elizabeth II and Tom Cruise. The ship closed in 2020 due to COVID-19 and laid off all of its staff, and was subsequently towed away on 14JUN to move to a “lower-cost” site for maintenance.
